A Symposium on
‘Innovative Practices in Education’
Sri Aurobindo International School, Hyderabad welcomes you to a National Symposium on ‘Innovative Practices in Education’ as part of its Golden Jubilee Celebrations.
The world is undergoing fundamental shifts today. Every generation of youth goes through a pattern of education which impacts the growth of a community leaving its tracks of progress, however imperceptible it may be. Be it the changes in the Environment, unprecedented globalization, pervasive use of technology, disruptions in economies or the changing nature of family structures, there is change everywhere. And these changes are throwing up extraordinary challenges; they are also presenting incredible opportunities.
This presents a unique challenge for Educators, since it is the Education System which forms the basis of handling changes in the dynamic world. And these challenges are on two dimensions. While the first is the external dimension requiring changes in curricula, adoption of technology, new pedagogical practices, etc.,
The second dimension, which is more important, is the internal dimension. This drives attention to the need of preparing future citizens to become compassionate individuals with responsible value systems which not only helps them be in tune with the ever changing world dynamism, but also strengthens them to design a more sustainable world in tune with their inner core. Educationists around the world are innovating on different dimensions. While some innovations are radical departures from the traditional way of schooling, others are incremental changes that accumulate to make a big difference.
Sri Aurobindo International School, Hyderabad has stood for experimentation in generating child centric learning systems through its fifty years of journey of INTEGRAL EDUCATION. There is a never ending effort to change ‘Teaching Methodology’ into ‘Learning Practice’ and the focus is to enjoy the process by learners as well as facilitators of learning.
It has always been an attempt to make ‘conscious learning’ a part of life through innovative learning practices, without compromising the needs of academics so as to help learners achieve excellence rather than success. We draw inspiration from our esteemed knowledge centres – Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education, Puducherry and Auroville Schools.
Any forward-looking school cannot afford to remain confined to its developmental activities. We must collaborate in order to enrich ourselves – and a constant growth is the only parameter of the success of any school.
This Symposium is an occasion for individuals/ schools/ organizations to discuss ideas and exchange views on Innovation in Learning Practices. It is but relevant to also involve student fraternity in the deliberations when we speak of child centric education, and hence their participation in the symposium is required. It is an opportunity for us to learn from each other and together contribute our bit to this worthwhile vision.
The Symposium will be held over two days December 10 & 11, 2016 in the residential campus spread over green panoramic vistas of nature of New Creation- A Free Progress School at Matridarshan, Champak Hills, Jangaon, Warangal District (two hours from Hyderabad). For all the participants of the seminar, transport from Hyderabad to Jangaon will be arranged.
We invite you to this symposium and take a privilege to host and learn from your vast experience in the field of alternative educational practices.
